Match in Focus

12:30 Sa 27Aug SS1

Tottenham v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Premier League matches involving Liverpool averaged 2.97 goals last season
Expert verdict
Having already lost ground to Chelsea and the Manchester clubs, both these teams will be eager for three points. Jurgen Klopp's side, facing their third straight Premier League away fixture, have struggled at the back but were scintillating going forward against Arsenal. Both teams to score looks likely, but at least three goals have been scored in seven of the teams' last ten meetings.
